Analyst Quote:

Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.

"In a November, 2012 survey of participants of cloud training/certification programs, conducted by ESG on behalf of EMC, 63% of all survey respondents said the most important technical skill for their personal career path over the next five years was cloud computing.  Yet, there is a well-demonstrated need for more professionals to develop this needed and desired competency.  Training and certification programs are an important path to building these skills, and in our research, 92% of all respondents stated that vendor-agnostic training is "critical," "very important" or "important" to this effort, and 90% said that it was "very important" or "important" to have course material based on industry standards. EMC's vendor-neutral, industry-standard-based cloud education and certification programs meet these important criteria and provide a valuable means for IT professionals to expand their skill set and help organizations realize the benefits of cloud computing.  EMC has taken an aggressive leadership position in providing education and certifications programs that help accelerate the adoption of leading-edge technologies."

Customer Quotes:

Lance Cleghorn, Graduate Student in Information and Computer Technology, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC

"I was involved with the EMC Academic Alliance since my sophomore year, and its courses definitely affected my career path and I think really gave me an edge.  I did an internship with the US Department of Defense and the knowledge that I got from the coursework really made me stand out with my superiors and my peers there.  After graduation I'll be returning to Ft. Meade, Maryland, where I'll work with the US Department of Defense in Information Assurance.  The EMC Academic Alliance has been a wonderful opportunity and I can't say how thankful I am that it is out there helping to give students like me an opportunity to exceed expectations and really stand out in the job market."
